New York Yankees: Greatest Moments In World Series History

Babe Ruth Calls His Shot

Game three of the 1932 World Series is one that included one of baseball’s greatest and most controversial moments.

Many believe that Babe Ruth, when facing Chicago Cubs’ Charlie Root in the fifth inning, pointed towards centerfield to “call” his home run.

According to the legend, he did, in fact, hit one in the eventual 7-5 New York Yankees‘ win.

Ruth and Lou Gehrig each hit two homers for New York as they would not only win the contest but clinch their fourth World Series title in franchise history.
